Back from the monastery

It was a tough retreat. There are times when the Lord is all sweetness and light with you, and there are times when he kicks your butt. This retreat was a few good days of butt-kicking.

I still haven’t assimilated what it all means, but I do know this: the Lord is calling me to take ownership of my situation, and to really be everything he has called me to be. It was a real challenge to face my sinfulness, in all areas of my life, but especially to put behind me all self-pity and have the courage of the sons of God.

There is more, but I’m not comfortable writing it all down just yet for public consumption. One day, perhaps. In the meantime, let us pray together for the coming of God’s kingdom.
